Understanding No Contact Orders and How to Get Them Lifted in Rhode Island Domestic Violence Cases

March 7, 2024 – Thomas G. Briody

When facing charges of domestic violence, a no-contact order is often served, which can complicate efforts to reconnect with loved ones. Many individuals wonder how quickly such an order can be lifted to resume communication or rebuild relationships.

However, courts are typically hesitant to lift these orders without compelling evidence that the individual charged with domestic assault is actively addressing the issue. Often, attending counseling sessions is a mandatory step for those convicted of such offenses.

Occasionally, judges may lift a no-contact order to allow communication between an incarcerated individual and their family or if there is substantial evidence of sincere counseling efforts and insight into the root causes of the offense. However, these decisions are made on a case-by-case basis and require legal assistance to achieve the best possible outcome.
